The Great Commission?

My eyes may have deceived me, but this is what I think I saw for about 3 seconds as I was turning onto Hill from Henley on my bike the other day.

I heard someone yelling and I looked left to see that it was a man, sitting in an open jeep at a red light at the Henley/Main Street intersection. He was "preaching" from what I could hear, dropping words like "God" and "Jesus" and "salvation." In the following second before I made my turn, I saw the words "The Great Commission" printed out across the side of his yellow jeep.


As I turned down my street, my brain caught up with what had just happened.

WTF?

If street preachers weren't already giving Christianity a bad name, now there is a man that preaches from his jeep? Has someone else seen this? Please, PLEASE, tell me it isn't true.

These guys do more to hurt Jesus's cause than help it, I'm afraid. The potential ends (going to heaven) don't justify the means.

I've also seen this jeep headed north over Henley st. bridge. I had a hard time not laughing... something his kids, also in the jeep, definitely noticed. They will undoubtedly have some very interesting stories for their children as well...
